Cool hog, NotCookie.
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

This one has been up for the 21 years I've been in town:

I'm moving Monday.  It's been repaired, reinforced and repainted several times.

New tag.  Evidence of a house that's gone back to nature:

There's a yellow brick fireplace and a bit of chimney among all those beeves.
Call me Mel. Some years ago- never mind how long precisely- having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me at home, I thought I would ride about a little and see the other parts of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.

And I'd just missed the marshmallow farm tag, which went up about a week before the Big Mow happened here.  See off in the distance:

That's in worse shape than the one I found yesterday cruising the back roads of Montgomery county.  Saw a lot of nice estates - really nice estates - on roads I never traveled before.  Was a good excuse to explore my own backyard.

If I remember correctly you have 24hr. to post a NEW Tag.  (per ST.N rules)
If you don't post in time, Tag reverts back to last Tag.

Well dick or not here's the tag. We call 'em low water bridges. Usually over a small creek that doesn't rise much but when they do it covers the bridge. Since this may be a regional thing I guess any oddball bridge should do.

This is the SE PA equivalent, an open grate bridge.  This is Bucks County Bridge No. 244, reconstructed in 1934, rehabilitated in 2010.  The original was probably covered wood.  What say you; is it odd enough?

traditional enemies of the Welsh, 1500 years ago. They kept stealing people into slavery and stuff.  I'm not English and their behaviour toward the Irish was nothing to do with us.

Next up an Army tank, although I suppose any self-propelled gun would do.  This is an M60A3 Main Battle Tank, circa 1979.

You mean at that big base (not too far away from you) that isn’t on the map?  Beans & I rode by that on the way home from one of the meets years ago.   We’re wondering why there is this big, beautiful road in the middle of nowhere (that’s not too far from you either) with no one around and no reason for a road like that to be there but we don’t care, we were just diggin it and all of a sudden there’s this huge gated base with no visible name that we could see.  That one?

I was just thinking that there are lot of BIG mobile guns around here too.  But the only way I could get a pic is from a boat...which makes the requirement for the Moto to be in the pic a bit of a dilemma.  ;D

Not too hard.  Almost every VFW Post and many memorial parks have something parked out front.  Do what I did with Craft Breweries.  Make a Google Map, download the KML and import it into your GPS.  Create a loop & go for a ride; stop when you find one that is photo worthy.  Caution: Entering said establishment and tasting a beverage may result in you getting Bruced or even worse. 

I was on some pretty interesting roads this week that I have never traveled before, some that are nicely twisted, and one or two that I will probably never venture onto again unless it is absolutely necessary.
